Fable REcords was set up by Ron Tudor in 1970 during the Radio Ban (a dispute between radio stations & record companies regarding royalties) and started issuing cover versions by local artists of music that couldnít be played on radio during the dispute. Many of these became bigger hits than the originals because we didnít get to hear them until about 5 years later when the ban was lifted. The label was later distributed by Astor, then finally by EMI (with slight change of label colour) until the end of vinyl.
